COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewmaster Mark Carpenter’s unique recipe for Brekle’s Brown—a tip of the hat to our first brewmaster—looks to both the past and the future. Mark’s special blend of roasted malts, inspired by the all-malt brown ales in Anchor’s brewing archives, gives Brekle’s Brown its coppery brown color and its unusual depth of flavor—richness and complexity without heaviness. For brewing and dry hopping, Mark has chosen a single, American hop variety called Citra. The subtly entrancing flavors and aromas of this distinctive new hop perfectly complement the unique maltiness of Brekle’s Brown.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Big brown bottle. Rating #61. Dark and clear amber pour with a dirty white head. Picking up a bit of hops up front which was a surprise, rich caramel malts support it nicely. Light bitterness, a little toast, but not much, very drinkable. (1875)

DocLock (8185) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Draft at Lansdale Brewfest. Dark brown turbid pour with off-khaki head. Nose was earthy brown sugary malt, some nuts, hops. Tasted as it smelled, with a rich body and complex finish.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2011
On tap at Tequila & BBQ In Philly. Clear deep chestnut under a thin dark khaki head. Faint malty aroma. Flavor of toasted malt, a little cereal and some nuts. Too sweet and unbalanced. Very thin mouthfeel that made the sweetness seem that much more out of place. Weak finish. A disappointing brew from one of my go to breweries.

Medium sized tan head, creamy, with fair retention and nice lace. clear, deep amber hued brew. Nose of malt and pennys, light roast. Body is medium, oily on the palate with a soft carbonation. Dry malts with some laid back citrus showing up followed by a mild roastiness, little dusty and earthy. Dry, mildly grainy finish, tad chalky, bitterness is well balanced. Nice ABA. Bomber from statelineliquors.

Beautiful crystal clear medium brown with a strong ruby color and a tan head. Aromas of wood and brown sugar and molasses. Dry, woody and roasted flavor to start followed by a crisp nuttiness that’s *not* hazelnut (for once). A dark caramel sweetness follows and then some dry bitterness to round it out. Leaves behind that dry woody flavor and a little lingering sweetness. Don’t drink this too cold or you’ll miss all the delicious flavors in here (I started out that way and it kept getting better as it warmed up). This is very much in the English style of brown ale but it has even more flavor and style which makes it unique. A great new brew from Anchor!
